TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida State volleyball team, recipients of the 2000-01 Athletic Director's Cup for Service, is scheduled to hold a 12-hour volleyball marathon Friday, March 21st, to benefit Refuge House. The event is scheduled to be held between the hours of 2:00 pm and 2:00 am. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Refuge House.
Over the years, the volleyball program at Florida State has prided itself in its community involvement. This year has been no different for the Seminoles, as players and coaches have put in many hours of service on afternoons and weekends, assisting charitable organizations and community centers such as Habitat for Humanity, Downtown Babies and Kids and Palmer-Monroe Community Center.
Refuge House, Inc., which opened its doors on February 14, 1978, provides support services to battered women and children and sexual assault victims. The goal of the Refuge House is to assist in the elimination of elements, which allow violence to continue in society today. The agency, funded by the United Way, relies on the financial support of individuals, merchants, civic groups and corporations to fulfill their mission.
The Florida State volleyball program and Refuge House appreciate the support of the local community and Florida State faithful. Please contact Refuge House at
